Re: Olympus kit lens question

Hello. I recently acquired an Olympus EP-L1 camera with two lenses. My question involves setting the focus manually on the 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 lens. When I set the camera to manual focus, the longer zoom lens can freely focus manually, but the 14-42 won't allow it. Any help would be appreciated.

Which 14-42 lens?

I have the ‘R’ version (not the Electric Zoom’ pancake), and usually have my EM 10.2 set to single auto focus + MF

This has the camera focus with half press, and then the focus can be fine tuned.

what happens when you turn the focus ring?

There are reports that the EZ lens has occasional trouble (breakage) of an internal ribbon cable, disabling the zoom and / or focus rings.
